FTT (Very) Off-Topic: the puppy dreams

mine mine mine
and moves every foot
as if running or climbing or hiding
or all
nose twitching, ears twitching, every part alert
in sleep not restful
eyes rolled back and out
his little bellows stomach flexing
his little voice crying
and some part wants to wake and tell hin
that everything is fine and he's safe
and that dogs don't dream as puppies do
as if the passage of time were something he knew or cared for
or that any moment from me would not activate
immediate attention
of eyes, tail, teeth and bladder
so clearly
we do not dream
of the same thing
and likely never will
